Nancie Yonker LMT
Nancie joined the MTC therapist team fairly recently but brings a wealth of experience with her. Nancie has been a bodywork practitioner and massage therapy educator for the past 28 years. She graduated from Sarasota School of Massage in the early 90’s. In 1994, she began teaching massage therapy there and for the last 16 years has been the Massage School instructor at Manatee Technical College.
Ironically, the two founding owners of MTC – Nancy Strand and Shea Shulman – were both graduates of Nancie’s Massage Therapy Program at Manatee Technical. Other students of Ms. Nancie have worked at MTC and both Misa McCue and David Billingsley both received their initial training and massage licenses through Nancie’s program. Strand has this to say: “Ms. Nancie was the best instructor I’ve ever had. She has a way of opening up doors so you can explore any number of the studies associated with massage therapy. She is largely responsible for the inspiration behind Massage Therapy Connections.”
Nancie is a consummate learner. Over the years she studied a myriad of modalities from energetics to neuromuscular dysfunction. Bodywork is so far reaching that it inspires a whole cascade of physical effects tapping into deep associations between emotions, thoughts and touch. Nancie believes that a big part of what makes our modern life style unhealthy revolves around stress. She has the experience and tools for reminding your body of its own inherent wisdom and sense of balance. Her head, hands and heart know the power of touch.
Because of her busy schedule, she is only available for bookings on Mondays; what a great way to start your week!
